    Default Storing a bike outside..does it gotta be a certain temp???

    So it's almost 50 it's gettin warmer up here in wi...it's no supposed to get below freezing anymore it looks like. Is it safe to ge my bike outta my ps garage and bring it home. I'd obviously cover it. Any ideas? Sunny and high 40s today got the itch.

    Did you have it in a fully heated garage or storage space? Or in your living room? If not it was probably in temperatures even lower than what it is now outside. The bike can be outside in any temperatures. Moisture is it's #1 enemy not cold temps. Cold temps can mess with the fluids but it's got to be for a long period of time or extremely low temps.

    Yeah, moisture is a real problem. If you cover it, use a VENTED cover or one that does not have a liner that holds moisture. If you use a cheap plastic cover your bike will rust like an old battle ship in no time. Hot temps will screw up a bike faster than cold temps.

    Is this a ok cover then? Rather than pay 100 for a hd one. Says it's vented but has a liner.

    My dad had that same cover for his goldwing, says he loved it and didnt have any problems trapping moisture in.
